TechFit is designed to be a simple, practical discussion tool that non-experts can use to inform the selection of the most appropriate technologies in specific locations and contexts.
TechFit supports decision making by systematising the way we collect, structure, screen and prioritise possible feed technologies and interventions using a set of general approaches, generic classifications and critical parameters from multiple angles (technical, institutional, policy, social and economic).
It has now been incorporated into the FEAST tool as an Intervention Ranking Analysis module. It allows users to rank a series of possible feed interventions based on their suitability to the farming system, commodity and socio-economic conditions of their target community. The Intervention Ranking Analysis provides a narrative explanation of the suitability of each intervention to local conditions.
